LIFE magazine set for comeback in print

A US media holding company plans to relaunch iconic magazine LIFE after years out of print.

Bedford Media announced the plan on Thursday. CEO Karlie Kloss said that a deal has been reached with publisher Dotdash Meredith, which owns the rights to LIFE's archives.

The magazine chronicled the 20th century, and helped usher in an era of photojournalism. It featured the work of famed photographers such as Robert Capa and Domon Ken, among others.

But sales dropped with the advent of television. In 2007, Time Warner announced LIFE would be discontinued. Archived material has since been available online.

The New York Times describes the announcement as "the latest high-profile effort to resurrect a legacy publication during a tough time for the media industry."
